1. A series you love to watch or want to watch, here are some examples;
The Walking Dead – There are currently four seasons, this latest is still showing whereas the remaining three (if you are a Sky customer) is on Demand, perfect to waste the hours, and when I mean waste I mean watching one of the best series out there (in my opinion). The series is about a man that wakes up from his coma to find out there is a zombie apocalypse, he has to go and find his family and stay safe or die trying.
Pretty Little Liars – There are occasional scenes where you need to give the screen your full attention but it’s mainly dialogue you should be paying attention to, so doing a bit of work on the side wouldn’t hurt. Synopsis: four girls get haunted by what seems to be their recently passed best friend. ‘A’ a mysterious person that makes their lives a living hell give them all sorts of problems as they try and discover how their best friend died that one frightful night.
Family Guy or Simpsons – These funny animated shows that are known by just about everybody, are easy to watch while doing some work. They’re laid back TV series so you can give half of your eye to them and the rest to your work at hand, great!
2. A programme that relates to the subject of your work – On the other side of the spectrum, you should at least be playing something related to your work you’re currently doing while you’re trying to do that said work. This makes you feel more motivated to do it, and while you’re trailing off you’re actually learning something for it, great idea right?
3. A documentary programme – Similar idea as above, you want to have that productive mind set on. Watching a documentary is informative and again may aspire you to do work, maybe.
4. Watch a series you have already watched before (contradicting the first point but it’s your choice on which to choose to do) – Doing so you won’t want to invest all your attention to it because you already seen it before as well as something you like.
